Owner description: Your whole family will experience a sailing cruise that will be the highlight of your Destin vacation, 3 hours of sailing, dolphins, snorkeling, and sea shell safari. Bring your own beverages and picnic lunch. The Emerald Dancer is an ideal Dolphin Companion; you can lay in the netted area and watch the Dolphins race through the transparent Emerald Green waters, just a few feet below you.Cruising during the later part of the day allows you to enjoy the lazy, laidback atmosphere created by nature, soft breezes and sunset skies.

“Worth every penny!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

When my family and I started to look into boat tours, we were trying to be really cheap about it and considered doing the Sea Blaster due to the $24 price point. However, we are so glad we did the $40 tour on the Emerald Dancer, especially after seeing how crowded and cramped those Sea Blasters looked.

The Emerald Dancer was spacious enough to walk around anytime you wanted and was pretty comfortable for the most part. You might want to bring a seating pad, due to the duration.

I highly recommend this tour, especially on Thursday evenings for the fireworks show.

The only recommendation I have is that 3 hours was maybe a little too long. But that's just me.

“Way beyond expectation...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

My family and friends had a blast! Jessie, Tony and the Emerald Dancer exceeded our expectation and made this the high light of our trip. We got to snorkle and ride with the dolphins (including a baby dolphin) on the most unique boat in the harbor.

“Amazing way to spend the day! Best part of our Vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

9 of us on a girls weekend, we took the day cruise, snorkeling and dolphin watching had such a great time with Captain Jesse, Joseph, Keith and Ed that we immediately booked the sunset cruise for that night! Jesse is an amazing Captain and incredibly knowledgeable about the Marine life. I would recommend this company to anyone traveling to Destin! You will not regret it!

“Stupendous Sailing Adventure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012 via mobile

Very exciting. Awesome crew! Never a dull moment with Captain Jessie! Snorkeling, sunset, wine and cheese... Can't think of a better combo.

Definitely the best deal on the Destin Harbor.

Took my wife and three kids on the snorkling tour and we had a blast. Captain Jessie and crew were very courteous and had a lot of sailing knowledge. Definitely recommend this trip to anyone.
